    Hello,

    I have a huge problem I can't seem to fix. I have some sort of virus that has gotten so bad that I can't even get on the internet anymore. I'm typing this from another PC.

    Initially, I was getting some sort of window flashing very quickly, so fast that I couldn't see what it was. Then I was notified of a virus. A tmp*.tmp.exe file was being created in my Application Data folder. (the * is a number that changes). Sometimes I get 2 or 3 files with different numbers such as: tmp2.tmp.exe and tmp4.tmp.exe and so on. I downloaded Prevx which was able to get rid of these files, but they would be recreated. I now get popups to various websites. And as I mentioned above, I can't even connect to a webpage anymore. It just takes too long.

    Thnx.
